DoorsOpenDayFestivalLogoNow in its 28th year the Glasgow Doors Open Days Festival is back to throw open the doors of the city in celebration of Glasgow’s architecture, culture and heritage from Monday 11 to Sunday 17 September 2017.

Get behind the scenes in some of Glasgow’s iconic historic buildings as well as working factories, breweries, theatres and more!

With a whole new history, heritage & archaeology themed programme, featuring hundreds of open buildings, walks, talks, tours, exhibitions, special events and children’s activities, the city is yours to explore!

All events are FREE to attend. Tickets for bookable events will be released at 10am on Wednesday 23 August on the Doors Open Day eventbrite profile. Get in fast!

Glasgow City Heritage Trust is excited to be teaming up with Lost Glasgow, to present an exhibition devoted to the documentation, discussion and appreciation of Glasgow’s changing architecture and its community throughout the last few centuries.

The exhibition is on from Thursday 29 June until Thursday 31 August 2017 at the Glasgow City Heritage Trust, 54 Bell Street, Glasgow G1 1LQ. Admission is FREE but please visit the Glasgow City Heritage Trust website for details of opening times.

Since launching in 2014, the Lost Glasgow Facebook page has attracted a 135k-strong global following. The site, which uses archive photographs to spark stories, memories, and debate about the city, its buildings, its people, and its ever-evolving history and future, was launched off the back of the successful Lost Edinburgh site.

The exhibition will cover everything from the majestic to the mundane, from the city’s great buildings to its more humble corners, from the tenement to the townhouse, from the great and the good, to the ‘common old workin’ man (and woman). The bottom line is, we love Glasgow, and the tales of our city. And everybody in Glasgow loves to hear a good story.

Join in, be a curator and rearrange our exhibition, then leave a comment about the pictures you connect with the most.

This weekend sees Glasgow take part in Doors Open Day

Doors Open Days give you free access to hundreds of fascinating buildings across Scotland.  Every weekend in September you can explore places that are normally closed to the public.  Some open up once a year, some just once in a lifetime…

On Saturday 17th and Sunday 18th September hundreds of buildings across Glasgow will open up to the public for free! Some of the places you can visit in the West of the City are:

There is also a Heritage Event about Gartnavel Royal Hosiptal Chapel on Friday 16th September at the Glasgow School of Art.

The number of venues participating in the event in the South and the East of the city have increased significantly over the last couple of years – so what about way out West? What are the places and buildings that people feel should be part of this fantastic celebration of Glasgow’s built heritage?

You can see the full listing of events in the West of Glasgow here and you can find out more on the Glasgow Doors Open Day website and the Scotland wide Doors Open Day website
